Hells Hollow Falls

This is an “on this day memory” from 5 years ago.  On January 31, 2016 we visited McConnells Mill State Park, where we followed a park map to Hells Hollow Trail–a 0.5 mile trail that leads to a waterfall. We parked in an unpaved parking lot, located at the trail head, and hiked the fairly easy trail to Hells Hollow Falls.

The majority of Hells Hollow Trail was level and easily navigated.
We took the right-hand path to the waterfall.

It was a fairly steep descent the last few feet to the waterfall.  The trail was very icy on the way down to the waterfall.

We hung onto the rail and made it to the waterfall without too much difficulty.

 

At the end of the railing we found wooden steps that led down to the creek bed.  The steps were free of snow and ice. The water was shallow enough that we were able to walk into the creek to gain a good position for taking photographs.

This visit was the first (and only time so far) that Bob and I saw this waterfall.  I would like to one dayL combine a visit to McConnells Mill State Park and this waterfall with a visit to nearby Living Treasures Wild Animal Park with our granddaughters.  It has been 5 years since Bob and I visited Hells Hollow Waterfall and even longer since we visited the animal park.  The hike to the waterfall would be easy for the girls, and they would love to see the animals at Living Treasures Wild Animal Park.

    I hope you can soon get back to both the waterfall and the animal farm with your granddaughters. I’m sure they would love both.
